The last of the selectable aspirations…
The Romance Sim
X axis — Emotional Connection: The Sim’s emotional connection to their lover(s).
Y axis — Monogamy Potential: The likelihood of the Sim committing to a partner.
High Emotional Connection, High Monogamy Potential — “The Sexual Romantic”: Like Romance Sims in general, Sims of this type are not lacking in the libido department and are not explicitly averse to having multiple partners. However, while these Sims do enjoy casual sex, they’re also happy to—and perhaps would even rather—spend all of their sexual energy on committed, consenting long-term partners. In some cases, especially in settings were fidelity isn’t expected, some of them may cheat, but they tend to feel awful about it after. By and large, though, these Sims are true romantics. Likely secondary aspirations: Family, Popularity.
High Emotional Connection, Low Monogamy Potential — “The Friend with Benefits”: Not likely commitment doesn’t make someone a jerk, and these Sims prove that. They may not be exclusive or even romantic with their partners, but they are always honest and upfront about this, and they don’t make a fuss if a potential partner decides that that’s not for them. They won’t buy you flowers for Valentine’s Day, but this type never hesitates to lend a helping hand—or, you know, a helping set of genitals. Likely secondary aspirations: Popularity, Grilled Cheese.
Low Emotional Connection, High Monogamy Potential — “The Serial Monogamist”: These Sims are more comfortable having one lover at a time, but they tend not to stay with most for very long. It may be that they have commitment issues, or that they get restless easily, or that they just haven’t found the right person, or that they just plain don’t want a serious relationship… but regardless of the reasons, they just aren’t wild about long-term relationships. They’re not bad people, but they’re often misunderstood. Likely secondary aspirations: Fortune, Knowledge.
Low Emotional Connection, Low Monogamy Potential — “The Hook-Up Master”: If this type had their way every time, no lover would waste any time leaving after sex. As the name suggests, they hook up with a ton of people, and they rarely sleep with the same person twice. They’re not necessarily jerks; they just prefer not to mix sex and personal relationships. Inconsiderate Sims of this subtype may resort to deceptive means to get partners into bed, but not all of them are that morally dubious. Likely secondary aspirations: Pleasure, Fortune.
I am sure you can guess which I think Don Lothario is.
